In Unusual Agreement, 'Post-Dispatch' Will Remain Liberal Under Lee

CHICAGO When Lee Enterprises Inc. agreed to purchase Pulitzer Inc. for $1.46 billion, it also agreed that the flagship St. Louis Post-Dispatch will keep its longstanding liberal editorial slant for at least the next five years, according to the purchase agreement mailed to Pulitzer shareholders Friday.

"For a period of at least five years following the Effective Time, Parent (Lee Enterprises) will cause the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to maintain its current name and editorial page platform statement and to maintain its news and editorial headquarters in the City of St. Louis, Missouri," the agreement states.

The sale was finalized Friday, June 3rd.

This reminds of a letter to the Editor I read in P-D a few years ago. The writer complained that the P-D "wouldn't endorse Jesus Christ if he ran as a Republican." That observation was probably as true as it was amusing. - JHC
